Château Tour Baladoz 2011 - Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Château Tour Baladoz is a lovely and typical Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, property of the Shepper family - also owner of Château Haut Breton Larigaudière in Margaux. The blend is dominated by merlot, making it a round and fruity red with notes of spring flowers and a nice wooden touch. The 2011 vintage has had time to assimilate its 18 months in oak barrels and with its well-integrated tannins, it is perfect to dink now.

Gilbert-Gaillard.jpg 88/100 "Beautiful garnet colour. Smoky and woody nose on a background of jammy fruit (cherry, redcurrant, blackcurrant). Classy and straight palate. The oak supports nicely the fruit. The tannins are melting. A true and honest Saint-Emilion, with the qualities that matter." (2013 vintage)    
90/100 "With considerable new wood flavors, this is a ripely opulent wine. It has weight, rich tannins, a smooth surface as its skims over the black fruits. The acidity, sweet black plum jelly, both give a warm, ripe character to the wine." (2009 vintage)

This is the flagship wine of the family and it has all the characteristics of a great Margaux. The nose is explosive with a combination of fruits, spices and toast that continues on the palate. The structure is rich and powerful, yet very elegant. It then shows a persistent finish, calling for more. Very well made and ready to drink now, it will also age...

As an entry level to the Margaux appellation, the second wine of Château Haut-Breton Larigaudière is an easy-drinking elegant wine. It benefits from all the great care given to the vineyard and though it is elaborated with younger vines, it is still a typical Margaux. Round and feminine with melted tannins, it will please anyone who likes the Margaux style.

This Château Tayet is worth much more than its simple "Bordeaux Supérieur" appellation. Coming from a terroir near Margaux, it has elegance, a great balance with ripe fruit aromas and wooden notes. It is the perfect house wine that we have been looking for; definitely a smashing hit!

Second wines can sometimes represent a great opportunity, especially in an amazing vintage such as 2010. La Dame de Baladoz 2010 is a lively and vibrant red offering elegant aromas of red fruit and cedar box in the background. Very well made wine with soft tannins, perfect for any amateur of Bordeaux, and Saint Emilion in particular.
